Digital Strategy and Business Tech Authority


Brian Armstrong is South Africa’s pre-eminent thought leader on Digitalisation and Business Strategy. He is the Professor of Digital Business at the Wits Business School, built on a recent foundation of 30 years of top-level management experience running and transforming large tech companies in South Africa and abroad. He is sought after as a Board member and advisor and consultant on digital transformation and brings a unique depth of insight and practical experience to this often hyped and confused field.

He is known as one of the industry’s most engaging speakers and consistently gets in excess of 80% “9 & 10” scores for his presentations and workshops. His talks are simultaneously engaging, actionable and challenging, and provide a clear clarion call as businesses embark on their exciting, but sometimes daunting, journeys into the digital future.

“Prof. Brian Armstrong gave a keynote address at our Educational Conference on 29 September 2017. His topic focused on Teaching for the 4th Industrial Revolution, and his panel discussion focused on how one should teach the future generation. His talk held the audience captive and gave much food for thought. His panel was exceptionally well facilitated and engaged the audience continuously. Prof. Armstrong was always professional and we would love to work with him again in the future”  Anthony Hales, Sifiso Edtech.
